Flexible, flavour-packed dishes that all lend a little something 'extra' to your next meal.
It's harissa butter on a roasted mushroom, then tossed with steamed veg or stuffed into a baked potato. It's tamarind dressing on turmeric fried eggs, then drizzled over a steak the next day. Rounded off with a chapter on the 'one basics' of desserts for you to perfect and then adapt with your favourite flavour combinations, such as a basic mousse transformed into coffee mousse with tahini fudge.
This is cooking it forward, Ottolenghi style, filling your cupboards with adaptable homemade ingredients to add some oomph to every mealtime.
Praise for Ottolenghi Test Kitchen Shelf Love:
'I absolutely love this book!' - Nigella Lawson
'You could cook out of this for years and never eat a dull meal.' - Diana Henry, Telegraph
'In this guide to making the most of what you have, it's inspiration that shines, rather than fancy ingredients.' - Observer Books of the Year
'Ottolenghi's test kitchen under a railway arch, where he and his team conjure up new recipes, has always felt like my version of Dahl's chocolate factory, and its spirit inhabits Ottolenghi's Instagram account. At a time when everyone and their pug is doing Insta-cookalongs, his is still something special' -- Marina O'Loughlin ― Sunday Times

He is the author of eight bestselling and multi-award-winning cookery books. Yotam has been a weekly columnist for the Saturday Guardian for over thirteen years and is a regular contributor to the New York Times.
